This manga is seriously one of the creepiest things I've ever read. Ibitsu. The name its self is weird. If anyone ever gets the chance to read it I highly recommend it.
It's not like the art of this manga is great or anything, but do you really need to downgrade it further by reading it on shitty manga aggregate sites?
That sledgehammer scene. One of my favorite manga for sure.
Its an app on my phone and its actually not bad. Better then most things I'm able to read manga on. Sorry for not being a privileged little fuck like you.
I don't even own a phone. Now who's the little privileged fuck?
I had inesplicable wet boners all over that thing
Oh my god I loved that scene and of course the scene I have for the photo on here. This manga seriously creeped me the hell out. Horror mangas are the best
Its called I have a job and make my own money. Get over the fact I'm using an app.
Not sure what to say lol
Misery/torture porn should neither creep you out nor scare you. Ibitsu is fucking shit.
The only truly creepy anime I've seen is Yami Shibai. There's pretty much nothing else in anime that is real horror (ie that doesn't rely on violence).
Manga is richer in that aspect, there are a number of well-known names (chiefly Junji Ito). I'm not sure if Fuan no Tane is popular, but it's the best in terms of pure weirdness and creepiness, similar to Yami Shibai.
2 lesser known and good works I can name are 6000 (which recently got revived by a new translation group I think) and Shiranui Kitanroku.
Among the survival horror subgenre the best I've seen is Hakaijuu, there's also recently Gakkou Gurashi! but it's a bizarre mix between horror and high school life.
Also what the fuck man at least read from a site that allows you to save pages what is this shit.
It's not the same without MC-san ;_; that ballsy fucker
I've read many horror Mangas and I know this one shouldn't have scared me but it did. Maybe because of how the girl is just in his life she asks him a question. It could also be because being paranoid as I am makes me feel this could happen. I don't know this just scared me though. I really can't explain why.
I was reading this on an app called manga zoo and I screen caped this which is why it looks so bad. Sorry for the shitty quality.
I think I've read the manga you're talking about. I can't really remember but I'll look into it and read it.
> It could also be because being paranoid as I am makes me feel this could happen
That I can understand.
Go Try Junji Ito then talk to me
I don't think we've seen the last of him yet.
>Ibitsu is fucking shit.
It's really not that bad man, it's a matter of taste and judging by the works you've mentioned, it's evident you like a different type of horror to that of OP.
For example, I think Fuan no Tane always feels too short. I get the intention was to have little bizarre unconnected scenes ('Like something you see in the corner of your eye', said the author IIRC), but I always felt most of the stories needed a page or two more to build up and at least vaguely allude to what could happen. Else, you just see a variety of bizarre shit with no connection and it loses impact. Yami shibai was much better in this regard, since everything was mysterious and unexplained, but felt like there was actually a story behind rather that random bizarre creatures popping out.
Ibitsu does feel a little like the pointless 'hurrdurr evil unkillable murderer with gore' that plagues horror shows (see: mahou shoujo of the end), but it's a nice short read and actually does well within the context of gory, non-bizarre horror series.
Fucking shit might have been too harsh, but that kind of horror is low brow. Ibitsu should have been structured like the original Halloween.
FnT's stories could be longer indeed, but I think the stories are meant for you to think on and for you to expand them on your mind. On a whim I once took that one story with the giant shadow and fabricated a backstory to it as if it was real and told the story to a group of friends on a somewhat dark evening, and they all got immensely creeped out by it. In regards to the stories themselves though that's why I added "pure weirdness" alongside the creepy, because if you don't ponder on that aspect it becomes worthless.
Well yes, Ibitsu's horror is 'traditional', to say something, but there are people who like that sort of thing better, since the immediate, familiar threat of physical violence scares them more than the more nebulous, less tangible fear of the unknown and the illogical. Just like there are people that like Resident Evil and think Silent Hill's weird shit is not scary, just odd.
So yeah, Ibitsu is a very standard plot with a very common brand of horror based on physical violence, but seeing it as a work of that subgenre of violence-horror (which is not my cup of tea, actually), it does pretty well.
What app bro? I'm looking for one to use on my phone
